Y’all know I love me some home workouts, and I’m proud to say it’s been over a year since I formally belonged to a gym. It saves me tons of money and time commuting, plus it’s actually made me love movement even more! I have so many options, plus using online classes ensures that I hit all the muscles in a group.
If you’ve kept up with Satisfy for a while, you also know I’ve used Barre3 for the past year or so. They have a great workout library and the subscription is cheap! Only $19/month ish for basic and they give student discounts, so I paid $15/month since I was in grad school. It definitely beats the price of a gym, plus the workouts were killer!
For the past two months, however, B3 hasn’t felt quite as good in my body, and I’ve actually been enjoying more explosive movement like jumping and lifting. Plus, YouTube and Pinterest home workouts are free once you acquire the equipment, which beats any price. I’ve transitioned to movement that feels better for me, and it’s feeling oh so good! Although I do have to be on the lookout for when my downstairs neighbors aren’t home and I have a window to jump around. It’s just polite, you know?
Here’s what I’ve been into lately!
FAVORITE HOME WORKOUTS
POPSUGAR 30-MIN FULL BODY WORKOUT
This workout squeezes allthemuscles into just half an hour and it’s the perfect amount of difficulty. I prefer workouts that give you a bit of a break, or keep your heart rate up but not racing. This video alternates well, so I never felt like my heartbeat was running away.
POPSUGAR + SHAKTIBARRE YOGA-BARRE HYBRID
I’m not 100% sure on what a chakra is, but this video had me all blissed out and feeling strong at the same time! The instructor makes sure to transition you from move to move super well, plus the tiny movements are so. dang. hard for being so small! There’s also a super good stretch at the end which is always my jam.
NOURISH MOVE LOVE | LEGS + BACK WORKOUT WITH CARDIO
This is where the jumping comes into play… Lindsey of NML is a boss lady who comes up with killer workouts. I love that each one comes with a video and a full blog (here’s this one!). I use the video to check form and then the blog to remind me of what I’m supposed to be doing! The split squat jumps in this particular workout are both my favorite and least favorite… because I’m terrible at them, but I can tell they really work my legs and jumpstart my heart rate!
NOURISH MOVE LOVE | KETTLEBELL STRENGTH + CONDITIONING
And that’s it for today! Do you love home workouts as much as me? What are your go-to’s?
